The European Institute of Nutritional Medicine (E.I.Nu.M.) is a non-profit organization that aims to spread concepts and tools that benefit patients and the health system in addressing Chronic Diseases.
According to the World Health Organization, 80% of the risk factors for chronic diseases are related to lifestyle, nutrition, and environmental factors. Recent developments in the Omics sciences, such as metabolomics, permit the assessment of the role of those epigenetic factors to the development of disease and allow physicians to deliver personalized medicine.
Our goal is to disseminate the medical model of Precision Medicine, the approach that puts the patient at the center of healthcare. Integrating cutting-edge Systems Biology tools in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases. We aim to improve health, clinical effectiveness, quality of life and longevity.
The basis of Precision Medicine is that the human body is better understood when viewed as a whole. Thus, employing Systems Biology approaches such as Metabolomics, Genome Sequencing and Telomere Analysis the physician can detect and treat the root causes that led to the disease.
